Dissent comes to Bromsgrove
8:50am Friday 1st November 2013 in Local
OVER the decades political comedian Mark Thomas has poked his nose into enough things to cause a politician to resign, arms deals to collapse, reform inheritance tax law, and accidentally become Guinness World Record holder for political protests.
Following his critically acclaimed, award-winning and deeply personal theatre show Bravo Figaro, Mark is back to doing what he does best - mischief.
Earlier this year the comedian set himself the task of committing 100 Acts of Minor Dissent in the space of a year and, on the stroke of midnight on May 13 2014, the task will end.
His new show is a catalogue of those acts, from the smallest action to the grandest confrontations, all hilarious, subversive, mainly legal and occasionally inspiring.
With six series on Channel 4, numerous awards, TV documentaries, three books, a published manifesto, a fifth series of Manifesto commissioned for Radio 4, a Sony Award for his show My Life in Serious Organised Crime, a magazine column that caused a diplomatic incident, the occasional arrest, court cases, giving evidence to Parliamentary Select Committees, stopping multinational infrastructure deals and no small amount of messing about, it’s no wonder that Mark is one of the UK’s favourite political comedians.
He will be performing at Bromsgrove’s Artrix on Tuesday, November 11.
